Would you love to fast-track your company's growth and optimize use of talent this year?

The truth is that YOUR company matters in this world. Yet, like many, you are likely struggling to adapt, integrate AI, keep critical competence - and deliver your exciting strategy.

And unsure of how to turn this around - worried, sometimes frustrated...

It is time to embrace a new, better - more agile, efficient, sustainable, and rewarding way of working. A Slow Down to Speed Up way. Powerfully accelerating your work. So YOU can lower risk, achieve your vision, and stay relevant in the market. 

Please don't make the mistake thinking pushing harder will work. Nor that re-organising and technology alone will solve inefficient team-dynamics, collaboration and communication. Or stop slow decision-making, firefighting, and silo-thinking - all hurting your growth, impact, bottom line, and peace of mind... Costing around 18% of your salary costs. Every year.

What you need is a blueprint to follow to make your organisation's successful development inevitable. 

 Our 'Agile Top Team Fast-track' provides the blueprint vital to install and embed the very core of agile mindsets and capabilities also needed to become AI-ready.


This literally lifts your whole organisation's human intelligence and use of competence - accelerating agile decision-making, collaboration, and transformation.

We start at the centre - the CEO and Top Team being the heart of your organisation. Get the core right. Get the conditions right. YOU'LL CREATE EMPOWERING RIPPLE EFFECTS.  

It used to be optional, but pairing business expertise with agility and high score human intelligence - combined with artificial intelligence is now a must. Not only to survive, but to thrive. 

In addition you'll have less stress and greater work satisfaction. Talent long for giving their best to agile companies with a purpose, run by empowering leaders who care and bring out their potential. 

Imagine in just 3-6 months your whole organisation could be faster on its feet

Modernizing, realizing must-wins, and rigged for the AI-era, outpacing competitors - just by learning the Slow Down to Speed Up methodology - full of simple, agile core methods (some shown to deliver +20% returns, McKinsey, 2019)... This is exactly what our past clients have learned how to achieve, and we'll show you how to do this too!

Our Agile Top Team Fast-track programs will deeply support and inspire you.
The output will by far exceed the input you make. We use the 10:20:70-model: (10% training. 20% coaching, 70% on the job implementation).

With our help you'll be confident you'll meet expectations, achieve your vision, be a leader people admire, have less stress, and best of all - greater work satisfaction.  


Why CEOs and leaders like you join an Agile Top Team & Culture Fast-track

We know what it is like to be an ambitious leader - knowing you long for a "faster horse" to meet expectations and achieve the big vision for your company and life - but lack ideas how to get your organisation to speed up. 

That is why we started this Fast-track program around 5 years ago. Since then we have helped many CEOs, top teams and leaders just like you to stop wasting valuable time, energy, and money, struggling with:

  • Poor team-dynamics - slowing you down unnecessarily.
  • Talent leaving - could be business critical and cause a set back. 
  • Constant firefighting - harming productivity and profitability.
  • Repetitive problems - hindering proactive innovation and growth.
  • Resistance to change - increasing risk, delaying your strategy. 
  • Slow decision-making - hampering returns and your odds to win.
  • Inefficient meetings - wasting 30-50% of time and resources.
  • Silo-thinking - reducing quality, productivity, and profits.
